AHA, Others Express Concerns About Potential Offsets Included in the Bipartisan Infrastructure Framework

June 29, 2021

As representatives of our nation’s hospitals and health systems, we express our concerns about potential offsets that were included in the Bipartisan Infrastructure Framework released last week. We understand the nation must address core infrastructure needs to allow us to continue to serve our communities and our patients. However, we are opposed to the use of an extension of mandatory sequestration, as well as unspent COVID-19 provider relief funds, as financing sources for any infrastructure package.
